"I believe I have a sunny disposition, and am not naturally a grouch. It takes a lot of optimism, after all, to be a traveler."

To grouch is to voice your discontent in an irritable manner, especially about something unimportant, such as grouching about the weather. When you beef about your Internet service, you complain about it. If you bitch about your grade, you complain and make unkind remarks about it. If your girlfriend/boyfriend is always carping at you, they are always complaining and criticizing you about things that are not so important. When you harp on about something, you talk persistently and tediously about it and in an annoying way. When she harps on about her looks, it sounds like relentless narcissism.

"Researchers say that talking openly about stressors also teaches children that not every day is a happy day, and that
[...] sometimes people are grouchy."
